The important thing is that we believe in ourselves. But why? Not only is it critical to our ability to charge forward, even when it’s hard, but also we can’t really expect anyone else to fully see or understand that we are truly amazing, beautiful, rare magical beasts. There’s a little bit of unicorn in all of us and it’s up to each of us to make sure the world knows that. In order to gain the understanding and trust required for others to believe in us, we have to honor that fascinating rare special quality that each of us has and let it be seen. How to do this? It goes a little something like this:
- Believe in yourself.
- Conduct yourself as if you are a rare and magical beast. You are. Trust me.
- Build trust and understanding with others.
- Others begin to believe in you.
- Rinse and repeat.
That last point – rinse and repeat – is just as important as believing in yourself in the first place. But that’s a story for another day.
